"Thrifty Car Rentals" Australia Transportation Tip by Raven72

DO NOT BOOK CAR HIRE WITH THRIFTY

I recently rented a car with Thrifty. My daughter left her wallet in the back seat. We contacted the Thrifty 1300 contact number and after 2 hours my call was still not answered. Eventually I called other numbers (at greater cost to myself as these were not the cost of a local call). The wallet was never recovered.

I then cancelled my future reservations with Thrifty.

When I called AVIS my call was answered immediately.

My advice - call around and see how long it takes for the hire car company to answer your call. Because if you really need assistance, you'll need it straight away - not two hours after you dial their number....

Mode: AROUND
Phone: My advice - don't call!
Type: Car/Motor Home
